Our Water Management for Development (Distance Learning) programme is designed to develop careers managing water and environmental sanitation services for low- and middle-income countries. It is aligned with the programme of the same name taught at the Loughborough campus.

The programme is managed by the Water, Engineering and Development Centre (WEDC) in the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering. The programme is delivered online from the IWSM Portal.

WEDC programmes are well-established, and held in high regard by practitioners and employers from both international development and emergency sectors. Modules are taught by experts in a broad range of disciplines who have considerable experience of working in low- and middle- income countries.

This programme is designed to:
- provide the multidisciplinary knowledge and skills to coordinate, plan, manage and monitor water and environmental sanitation services, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries

- support the professionalisation of the sector, through policy development, performance improvement, institutional reform, change management, bench-marking services and aiming for financial viability

- encourage a critical approach to the global principles and local practice of sustainable water and environmental management for the public good

- equip students with appropriate expertise and skills for relevant work in management of water and environmental sanitation for low- and middle-income countries

- encourage critical analysis through in-depth study of a specialist topic.

Loughborough attracts and appoints outstanding academics, many of whom are expert leaders in their fields. By studying our Water Management for Development programme, you will benefit from working with specialists who are enthusiastic about their subjects and at the forefront of current research.
